There is one thing I just can’t live without, sounds dramatic but its my equivalent of coffee. I try to make my hot chocolate as good for me as possible; dairy and sugar free.
For along time my hot chocolate of choice has simply been hot cocoa, however on a trip to Whole Foods (dream store) in London I discovered something new.
It’s pricey but just a couple of teaspoons and you’ve got a tasty and filling treat. Thinking about it I’m salivating.

How I like my no added sugar hot chocolate?
Over the years I’ve tried lots of dairy free milks including making my own nut milk (delicious but time consuming). My go to dairy free milk is oatly. No nasties and I love the texture and it taste’s great, especially for hot drinks.
Heat a mug of oatly in a pan with two teaspoons of the cacao powder per mug. Heat until a rolling boil, it can get quiet frothy so watch for it over flowing. Once heated and frothy take off the heat and whisk a little. At the moment I like mine with a spoon of almond butter in or if you like it a little sweeter tasting pop a date in the mixture and it will liven things up a little.
